Report: Spurs are now interested in signing two defenders from same club
Journalist Zeki Uzundurukan told Transfer Plus (06/07/23 as relayed by GS Gazete and Sport Witness) that Tottenham Hotspur are interested in Galatasaray duo Victor Nelsson and Sacha Boey.
Over recent weeks, multiple Turkish outlets have talked up the possibility of Tottenham swooping for Nelsson, with Aksam even claiming earlier this week that the Lilywhites were set to beat Arsenal and Atalanta to the centre-back’s signature.
The publication claimed that after Spurs’ initial offer of €22m (£18.7m) was turned down, Ange Postecoglou’s men had decided they would meet the Dane’s €25m (£21.34m) release clause.
Sacha Boey is also a target for Spurs this summer
Uzundurukan has now suggested that it is not just Nelsson who is on Tottenham’s radar but also right-back Sacha Boey.
The journalist explains that Galatasaray vice president Erden Timur even recently travelled to London and spoke to Spurs about their interest in the pair.
He asserts that the Turkish giants are looking for a combined fee of €50m (£42.6m) for the two players.
Spurs Web Opinion
Apart from Turkish outlets, no one has suggested that Nelsson is anywhere near the top of Tottenham’s wishlist.
The club’s rumoured interest in Boey is a complete non-starter as it is clear that Spurs are not in the market for a right-back this summer.
